CouponPanel

https://www.feeds4.com
https://www.feeds4.com/publishers/couponpanel/

What they say:
Feeds4 has released its newest plugin, CouponPanel. CouponPanel allows Wordpress website owners to display relevant or targeted coupons and promotions to their visitors. WordPress owners only need to create a page on their site and insert our shortcode on that page to display a list or “panel” of valid coupons and promotions their visitors can use to save money on their online purchases.

CouponPanel users are in control of the data we deliver. The plugin allows users to either choose from 50+ predefined categories or CouponPanel users can curate their own list of merchants they feel will be the best match for their visitors.

Five things that make CouponPanel a great choice for any WordPress owner to install:

Content. Feeds4 maintains the coupon content. This means once the plugin is activated and the shortcode is entered, Feeds4 keeps the promotional content current via APIs. For busy influencers or website owners that rarely change their website, this can be a great solution for receiving ongoing, unique content, they don’t have to maintain.

Monetization. All the content distributed by the CouponPanel plugin is affiliate marketing content that can earn the website owner revenue if a visitor uses a coupon and makes a purchase. Merchant relationships, tracking, reporting and payments are all handled by Feeds4 and visible through the Feeds4 publisher portal.

Curation. Plugin users can either pick a predefined category and get our recommended list of merchants and promotions for that category or plugin users can login to the publisher portal and curate their own choice of merchants they want to work with. Feeds4 offers publishers 6000+ merchant programs and 50+ categories to choose from.

Customization. The plugin is highly configurable. Plugin users can change the look and feel of the coupons using the CouponPanel content settings tab. The shortcode also has parameters that allow for further customization including inpost tagging and more.

Lastly the Cost. It’s free! The plugin, the API, the service, our platform, everything. There is no cost to the Wordpress website owner but we do split any commissions earned starting at 70/30 with 70% going to the publisher.

Please note, CouponPanel access is invite only. Not every website that applies for an API token gets approved and this is due to brand restrictions that might cause a conflict or WordPress websites that might not be a good fit for our advertisers.

If you are looking for a simple to use Image slider that has several options for displaying your sliding gallery this is one to have a look at. You will have to manually add all the images to the Gallery but it has a very nice display and integrates well into Elementor layouts. overall a pretty nice gallery plugin.

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. There are a few plugins specifically for ClassicPress and all plugins for WordPress 4.9.9 work well on it. I do believe it has a future.

One thing I am looking forward to in the ClassicPress World is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress specific plugins and their own repository. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I’ll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.

This week for ClassicPress I have:
